Circle In The Sand 

Calen, over at Impromptu Promptlings has given us our next assignment in The Sandbox Writing Challenge….How does this picture relate to your life?


Is it a circle?

A zero?

The letter “O”?

Relate this figure to your life.

What does it me to you?

If I was taking one of my Soul Strolls along the beach and came across this circle drawn in the sand, I would have thought it was left there for someone, maybe me, to continue adding to it….turn it into some form of sand art….I’d start by adding bits of shells and pebbles that litter the beach, maybe some washed up seaweed. I’d add my ‘stamp’ to it, then continue on my way, in hopes that future wanderers would add their touches, and watch as what was once just a simple circle drawn in the sand has grown into a visual piece of sand/nature art made by many.

This is one I started in May….I’d visit it every few days to see how it was evolving…….it was a spiritual quest for me. To know that there were others adding little pieces of themselves to it, connecting us in some little way, was enlightening. Each time I would approach and see a new addition to it, I felt a little flutter in my heart. It has since been washed away by storm surges, but I look forward to the next one, whenever it presents itself.


….and of course, you know there has to be a song in there somewhere!!
